Question

Last Saturday, I got a new to me '08 Warrior with 6K miles on it. It has a few goodies but the clutch/brake cables are rusty. It spent a little time outside so I am in the process of replacing all the rusty stuff. Believe it or now, the only parts that I can see that have surface rust on them, are all the aftermarket stuff. All the OEM Yammy stuff shined up good as new, including the paint!

The bike currently has drag/T-bars on it, straight pipe exhaust and a PCIII. I would like to replace the rusty cables but not sure where/how to order them. Will the OEM work or do they need to longer? The current ones have quite a bit of slack on them which makes me think they can be shorter. I also thought about putting wire loom or wire shrink wrap over them since they still work great. Any ideas?

I buy most of my OEM pats from YSP.

I bought OEM cables as part of my maintenance plan since the originals lasted 14 years and the clutch is buttery smooth.

You can order those OEM stainless OEM cables or spend more for a set of Barnett stainless.
